History of the Collection
Gift of Ellen Marsh Schleicher, 1996.
The Papers were acquired in two parts: first in 1996 and in 2003. As related materials were found in separate acquisitions, such items were grouped together, thus losing any original order that might have existed. However, much of the collection was in no discernible order upon acquisition. The 1996 acquisition was a gift of Eli Marsh's daughter, Ellen Marsh Schleicher. The 2003 acquisition came to the Amherst College Archives and Special Collections by way of the Smith College Archives, where a box of Eli Marsh's papers were found among those of Margaret Marsh, his wife and an alumna of Smith College.
